OSRR 1000

Woods Hole Oceanographic

Institution - Oil Spill Detection

and Mapping under Arctic Sea

Ice using Autonomous Under-

water Vehicles

The goal of this project is to evaluate and develop an AUV-based system for detection and mapping of oil in ice-infested waters from underneath the water and/or ice.

OSRR 1004

National Research Council

(NRC) - Ocean Studies Board

Responding to Oils Spills in

Arctic Environments

The National Research Council will assess the current state of the science regarding oil spill response and environmental assessment in the Arctic region (with a specific focus on the regions north of the Bering Strait), with emphasis on potential impacts in U.S. waters.

.

slide14

Scenarios

  • Preparedness
  • Response and Clean Up
  • Strategies for Establishing Baselines
slide15

OSRR 1007

Burning Behavior of Oil in Ice Channels

The objective of the proposed research is to enable assessment of the efficiency of in-situ burning of an oil spill in icy conditions and set a new experimental and modeling framework to explore burning of oil spills on ice, which will allow quantifying the efficiency of combustion as well as point of extinction for liquid fuel spills in icy conditions.

.

slide16

Phase I – Small Scale Test

  • Test using a small scale test apparatus
  • Develop model to predict spread and burn rate

.

slide17

Phase II – Large Scale Test

  • Test using large scale (10’ X 18’) ice matrix
  • Reassess model developed in Phase I

.

slide18

Research for 2013

  • Beginning process
  • ICE Month at Ohmsett, Feb – Mar 2013
